What are the advantages of these reports? Obstacles this reporter may face include being blown around by gale force winds, the ground shaking during an earthquake, or snow piling up in front of him during a blizzard.
Reporter on the Scene: This person is trying to give a serious report on the dangerous conditions while they are in the center of the storm. What types of weather cause weather alerts to be issued? Place students in small groups of no more than four students. Assign each group a type of weather.
Assessment Collect work and assess if the weather matches the clothes students have chosen. Before they begin writing, however, clearly define the roles of each person in the group.
